In Loving Memory
Jilleta Lynn (Williams) Bruns
December 2, 1944 - February 5, 2019

Jill L. Bruns, 74, passed away on February 5, 2019 in Walla Walla, WA. A Memorial Service will be Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 3:00pm at the Milton Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1244 N Elizabeth Street, Milton-Freewater, OR 97862 with Pastor Lloyd Perrin officiating.
Jill was born to Philip and Bethel (Dorr) Williams on December 2, 1944 at the Swedish Hospital in Seattle, WA. Her family lived in Kirkland, WA until the family moved to Wrangell, AK where her father went into the laundry business with his parents. Jill started school in Wrangell but when she was 9 years old the family moved south to Kent, WA and Jill attended Buena Vista Adventist School in Auburn, WA. She began high school in the Kent Public School district but finished at Auburn Adventist Academy and graduated in 1964.
Jill married Gene in July of 1965. They moved to Walla Walla so Gene could attend Walla Walla College. Jill stayed home and raised their four children until they were all in school. In 1979 she began working at Walla Walla General Hospital where she retired in 2012 after 33 years.
Jill had many hobbies that she was passionate about including, horses, backpacking at Mt. Reiner, sewing, and gardening but above all she loved being surrounded by her family the most. She adored her 14 grandchildren and spent a lot of her free time spoiling them. Jill will be greatly missed.
Jill is survived by her husband of 53 and ½ years, Gene Bruns, daughter, Jannelle (Allen Loe Jr.) Bruns, three sons; Mike (Misti) Bruns, Jeff Bruns, David (Linda) Bruns, a sister, Judy de Chantal (Williams), and 14 grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother David Williams.
